Abstract

The first example of a base metal (manganese) catalyzed acceptorless dehydrogenative coupling of methanol and amines to form formamides is reported herein. The novel pincer complex (iPr-PNHP)Mn(H)(CO)2 catalyzes the reaction under mild conditions in the absence of any additives, bases, or hydrogen acceptors. Mechanistic insight based on the observation of an intermediate and DFT calculations is also provided.
